Mechanics of this web forum Can't Post

Being a new user, I'm not sure how to do things.

(1) How do I get a list of posts I have made?

(2) I can't find the "Watch this thread" button. Where is it and what does it look like?

(3) Where should I ask / find answers to these sort of questions?

I'm sure there will be other basic queries.

Not sure, but I don't think you can.

I don't think there is such button. But if someone answers your post it will be marked as unread fior you.

Hi,

Welcome to the perlguru forums.

Click your username link, then the "Show user's posts" button in the bottom left ( http://perlguru.com/gforum.cgi?do%3Dsearch_results%3Bsearch_forum%3Dall%3Bsearch_user_username%3Dmeconopsis%3Bmh%3D25=Show+user%27s+posts ).

The watch threads section of edit profile states "To watch a thread, click the "Watch Thread" button on the thread display page", but as Laurent has pointed out, I don't think this button exists? However, there is a "Send reply notification" option in the user profile section.

There is a general questions section which is probably most suitable, but as you'll notice, its pretty inactive.

Regards,

Chris

(1) OK, so where is my username link? It is there if I am looking at a post I have made, but otherwise?

(2) It is great to have a "help advice" to use a feature that doesn't exist. Perhaps the "help advice" needs editing?

(3) So there is. Thanks.

Hi,

I usually click on my username link from "who's online", I don't think there is more direct way.

As far as I am aware, the forums are moderated but not maintained. The moderators may have the ability to edit certain content, or can contact someone who can.

I realise the perlguru interface isn't the most user friendly, but its the admirably helpful community that makes this particular perl forum special.

Regards,

Chris

I don't know if this what you are looking for, but you have an "Edit profile" button near the top of the window (next to the "Main index" button.

Edit profile doesn't get me a list of my posts, but "Who's online | my_username | Show user's posts" does. (Thanks Zhris)
